Pot of Gold Estate Auctions is donating proceeds from their online auction to WTTA to help fund the organization’s important work of bridging the gap between mental health and responsible firearm owners.
Walk The Talk America (WTTA), a non-profit organization bridging the gap between mental health and responsible firearm ownership, is excited to announce that Pot of Gold Estate Auctions has chosen them for a charity auction. The Firearms Fundraiser Auction is open now and will close on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, at 5 pm MST. Apart from the buyer’s premium and tax, all auction proceeds will benefit WTTA.
The online-only auction is stagger style, which means that the first lot in the auction will close at 6:00 pm MST, and each item after that will close 20 seconds later. It also has a soft close feature; if an item gets a bid right before closing, the bidding will reopen for one more minute to allow for other bids.
There are 39 items, including semi-auto rifles, pistols, shotguns, targets, bags, hats, ear pro, bottles, and clay pigeon launchers. These items were donated by Ruger, Glock, Sig Saur, Armscor (Rock Island Armory), Bersa, Talon, Hi-Point (MKS Supply), POF, Canick, Keltec, Tristar, and Savage via Camfour (Distributor). Custom, one-of-a-kind Walk the Talk America guns were provided by Ruger, Glock, and Avidity Arms.
Michael Sodini, the visionary founder and CEO of WTTA, shared his enthusiasm: “This charity auction, graciously hosted by Pot of Gold Estate Auctions, is a fantastic opportunity for firearm enthusiasts to get one-of-a-kind custom items and is a crucial support for WTTA. Despite common perceptions, our organization relies heavily on donations and limited corporate sponsorships to fuel our efforts. This charity auction is pivotal for us, providing vital resources to further our mission of bridging the gap between mental health and responsible firearm ownership. We hope you join us in making a tangible impact. Walk the talk with us, bid generously, and build a brighter future together.”
Walk the Talk America believes that improving the quality and availability of mental health resources to gun owners will reduce suicide by firearm. WTTA is paving the way by educating mental health professionals and the gun community about mental health for firearm owners.
